Google Touts Chromebook as an XP Replacement Commented on: 1 week ago (April 9, 2014)

There are real advantages. Not many, but compared to PCs, they're:
1. affordable with SSDs, therefore responsive
2. dead simple
3. maintenance free

Compared to tablets, I...

Thinking About the Future of Surface Commented on: 1 week ago (April 9, 2014)

That's perfect. Let's call it, 'Surface RT Pro'.

Also, more stylus.

In all seriousness, there isn't a clear path forward for MS. You're advocating for RT, Paul thinks it's a dead...

Amazon Fire TV Commented on: 1 week ago (April 7, 2014)

I'm no huge apple fan (never had a mac) but I'm pretty sure my iphone was already configured when I ordered it through their website (rather than vzw). It's not comparing apples to oranges (ha)...

Updates to Windows 8.1 are a Step Forward, Not a Retreat Commented on: 2 weeks ago (April 6, 2014)

It's a poor framing of the question, Paul.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Review Commented on: 2 weeks ago (April 2, 2014)

It's not out until Tuesday, right? And Windows Update means it's going to happen automatically, is it?

What I Expect (and Hope) to See at Build 2014 Commented on: 2 weeks ago (March 31, 2014)

This was and continues to be my biggest disappointment with Windows 8/8.1. Kinect in some form should be a killer feature for the 'modern' dev environment, but they seem unwilling to solve a few...

Office for iPad + Apple Wireless Keyboard Commented on: 3 weeks ago (March 29, 2014)

There's a difference between 'casual user' and 'blogger'? Hahaha.

Some Thoughts About Office "Touch" for Windows Commented on: 3 weeks ago (March 28, 2014)

I think it was pretty brave what MS did with the ipad version being so complete. And to allow purchases through the app store, that was an interesting decision.

Microsoft Office for iPad Review Commented on: 3 weeks ago (March 27, 2014)

One big question I have that I think is often ignored - how does it compare to the truly freemium Onedrive office? Obviously it has fewer features if you don't pay, but are they roughly...
